    We are going to Disney June 3-8.. my girls will be 5 and 2 by the time we go.. tomorrow is my 180 day mark for dining reservations and we are not staying on resort..when I book, do I include my 2 yr old or is she free at most like she is for tickets

    Hi, Mallori!

    I love when it is time to book my dining reservations. This means my magical Walt Disney World vacation is getting closer!

    When booking your reservations, include all guests in your travel party regardless of age. This will ensure a proper size table so you can all sit comfortably. Your 5 year old will be charged the child's price at buffets and dinner shows, and your 2 year old can share off your plate at no extra charge. If you prefer to order her a meal of her own, you will be charged at menu pricing. Kids menus are available at most dining locations, and the prices are reasonable and choices are kid-friendly!

    To make a dining reservation, you will need a credit card to secure the time and location. Make sure to cancel any unwanted reservations to avoid a "no show" fee. Most locations require at least a 24 hour notice to cancel, but read the details during the booking process. If you have any trouble booking online, feel free to call a friendly Cast Member at (407)WDW-DINE. 

    Have fun booking your dining reservations, and I hope you get all the fun locations you are hoping for!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
